Hi Everyone! August 31, 2023
I am reminded this week of how blessed I am to live in Idaho where we don’t have hurricanes! The people in Florida and the south are struggling and our weather is just about perfect. Disaster relief is spread thin between Hawaii and Florida. Keep all those affected in your prayers.
Last Sunday we were privileged to have Kathryn Tompkins and Lizzy Briggs speak about their experiences and what they learned at Young Life Camp. It’s very clear that they are learning the right things! Good job girls!
When Roxanne went to the credit union this week with the deposit, they almost rejected a few checks! They no longer will allow us to write PUMC on our checks. We will have to write out Payette United Methodist Church on the to line.
Speaking of PUMC, we were featured on the GNW Area Communications last week. They interviewed Pastor Mary Beth and I a couple of weeks ago for the story. Click on the blue link and read the story. It makes us sound great and very smart! Thanks for being the best congregation on the planet!
There will be no Monday Morning Coffee With the Pastor this week. It will resume on September 11th.
On Sunday, Carmen and Marcy let us know that Grace Hammon just celebrated her 93rd birthday. Happy Birthday Grace!
Please sign up to help with our Neighborhood Carnival on Saturday, September 23rd. Find the clipboard on Sunday or call the office and I’ll sign you up.
Invite someone new to church on Sunday, September 24th. Let’s find some folks that need a church family and need to hear the good news! We will have a potluck afterward.
Love INC is hosting a fundraiser on Thursday, September 28th from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at Ontario Calvary Chapel. It will feature a dessert bar, live music, raffle, silent auction and special speaker, Sting Ray Robb, a local kid who won the 2020 Indy Pro 2000 and Vice Champion in the 2022 Indy Lights. You can buy tickets by calling 541-216-6116 or get more info at www.loveincoreida.org.
We have prayer requests this week.
Please continue to pray for Gary and Lis Williamson and their family.
The Hood’s relative, Lori who was burned badly in the fires on Maui has taken a turn for the worse and really needs our prayers right now.
Ron’s brother Jim had a PET scan last week and learned that the cancer has spread. He is consulting with his doctors to see what his new plan is. Keep Jim and the whole Warzyn family in your prayers please.
Karen Sagehorn is asking for prayers for a friend of her neighbor, Kenny who fell and is injured. He may need surgery and would like prayers for wisdom for his medical team.
Ron is recovering nicely from his knee replacement surgery. He is walking with a cane now and getting around pretty well. He thanks you for your prayers.
Continue to pray for Terry Hershey, Steve Simonson, Olivia Bybee, Hugh Homan, Jean Pollock, Macy Steckley, Mary Boesch, Teresa’s stepdad Larry and her grandson, and Shannon Osborn.
We hope to see you in church on Sunday!
